    Got one today 18 days early for my 26th birthday. Aside from winning the lottery, my life is complete.

    Thanks to you both. Here is a picture of the best quality my phone was able to take.

    Nice grab. I've always liked the look of those things.

    Thanks fellas. I'll give an update once I shoot it. Of course with my luck, I get a new gun and then a million things come up that prevent me from shooting it. Soon though...very soon.

    Update: shot exactly 108 rounds today through my pro raptor. 100 of those rounds were Winchester and the remaining 8 were federal guard dog. Not a single failure of any kind and fired smoothly. Im rather surprised that the first 108 rounds fired without failure. I would have thought that if at any time during the break in period there would have been any sort of failures, it would have been in the first 100 or so. But what do i know? I guess i have 392 more rounds to go through in this break in period to really tell about the reliability and functionality. As for the accuracy...for having a 4" barrel, it's accurate in both short and long ranges. Overall I am more than pleased to have this in my collection.

    Here's mine after 150 rounds at 25 yards, offhand, right after I got it. :)

    BTW, those Hogue rubber palm swell grips are some of the BEST feeling grips I've ever used. :)

    Very nice! I am definitely interested in getting some new grips so that I can preserve the originals. The obvious choice of VZ grips are nice, but I think I'm leaning more towards some from Larry Davidson. Those hogue grips are pretty sweet too though. I'll definitely consider them.
